It seems that a big problem we have is that we say things such as "TKD sucks" only to have someone come around and tell us how they have "the real TKD" that is much better. Then someone else will come along and tell them that they're not really doing TKD at all, they're doing BJJ and someone's just calling it TKD.

In otherwords, the names of the martial arts we discuss are pretty much meaningless. So perhaps some sort of descriptive convention could be used. This would even be helpful for eclectic martial artists.

For example, I study a blend of judo, wrestling, bjj, sanda, and boxing. I might rate my curriculum as follows:

Striking: 14%
Standing Grappling: 24%
Groundwork: 55%
Melee Weapons: 1%
Firearms: 1%
----
Strength Conditioning: 8/10
Cardio Conditioning: 8/10
Flexibility Conditioning: 7/10
Contact: 9/10
----


That's just a quick write-up of the idea, I'm sure there are probably other areas to make note of.

You need a higher intelligence to get the extra skill picks. You need Spot and Listen pretty high to offset the negative wisdom modifier.
